All the manufacturers will have the standard fittings which include ridges, valleys, bonnets and angles. Feature tiles such as Fishtail, club, bullnose, diamond, bat access and oast tiles are still available but limited to some ranges.

The aesthetics each supplier has created gives a distinctive character to each project, depending on the mix of colours and choice of manufacturing process you will see how they can be used and adapted in all designs from New Build to conservation and Heritage.

You have an option to create your own blend bespoke to you and your project, this would allow you to try and create a warm cottage feel or even a modern uniformed look for your contemporary design.

Are you trying to match in with an existing house with your extension or trying to stay within the local character, we have Kent and Sussex pegs, 11×7’s with fittings to suit that replicate an old tile. The benefits of buying new rather than second hand is that you will get a manufacturer warranty where as you would receive nothing with second hands.

Clay Peg Tiles

Historically, each locality where peg tiles have been traditionally made and used will have its own size of tile, probably determined by the type of clay used and the incidence of loss due to firing. These tiles were made at local brick and tile yards, often on country estates.

Some consistency of size can be identified:

  • Kent peg tiles are usually 9.5 inches (240mm)in length.
  • Sussex peg tiles are more likely to be 10 inches (250mm) in length.

Others, in Surrey for instance, were 11 inches long but could be as long as 11.5 inches (290mm). Around York, peg tiles can be as large as 12 inches x 8 inches (300mm x 200mm). Peg tiles in various sizes will also be found in Cambridgeshire and East Anglia and in parts of Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Dorset and the southern counties.

Ornamental tiles available on request.
